Top 5 National Parks in Uganda

Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda's most popular National Park and certainly one of its most scenic. The lush savannah of Queen Elizabeth National Park offers prime grazing for animals including buffaloes, elephants, various types of antelopes and a variety of over 600 bird species.

Kibale National Park

Kibale National Park is home to a vast number of species of birds as well as the greatest variety and concentration of primates found anywhere in East Africa. Add to this the elusive forest elephants that move seasonally through the forest, and you can see why Kibale National Park is a superb safari destination.

Lake Mburo National Park

Lake Mburo National Park is known as the 'Home for Zebras'. The Acacia woodland shelters a number of wildlife species which include the gigantic eland antelope, as well as topi and impala. Lake Mburo is the largest of the five lakes in the park, which together attract hippos, crocodiles and a variety of water birds.

Murchison Falls National Park

The Murchison Falls National Park in the North is one of Uganda's oldest conservation areas, initially gazetted as a game reserve in 1926 to protect a savanna that Winston Churchill described as 'Kew Gardens and the zoo combined on an unlimited scale'.

The Victoria Nile plunges over the remnant rift valley wall at Murchison Falls, the centre piece of the Park. The Falls transforms into a placid river flowing to Lake Albert and providing a memorable wildlife spectacle. Regular visitors include elephant, giraffe and buffalo while hippopotamus and Nile crocodile are permanent residents.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in the south of Uganda and is home to over 400 mountain gorillas who are considered to be the main attraction of the park.There is actually 11 habituated gorilla groups in Bwindi and it is important to mention that gorilla trekking is still the most popular tourist activities in Uganda.

Besides mountain gorillas, the park is also home to about 120 species other mammals including 360 different types of birds of which 10 of these are unique to the heartlands of Uganda.
